Orient Express Pro Street bikes showed up 35 strong for the first ever Manufacturers Cup at South Georgia Motorsports Park near Valdosta, Georgia.

Mike Slowe qualified number 1 on his little turbocharged Suzuki GSXR1000 and beat George Gooch’s big Hayabusa in the final. That would normally qualify Slowe’s performance as “dominant,” but the big noise—literally and figuratively—of the event came from Pro Street B. Lavar Delee and his Cecil Towner-tuned, nitrous-huffing HTP Performance ‘Busa put on a show. The combination lowered the nitrous ET record every lap until finishing with a best of 7.12 on the way to snaring B class honors. That’s just a hundredth of a second off the all-out record held by Bud Yoder on a 600 horsepower turbo Hayabusa.
